LAST update about these fires!

We had actuallly had really, truly RAIN today!!  Not alot, just sprinkles, but enough to tell us that there was humidity in the air!  I’m sure that the firefighters were thrilled!  It has been cloudy and the temps were in the 70’s with NO wind!!  Thank you all for your rain dances!!  Tomorrow will be 10 degrees warmer with slightly more winds but I think we are OK!!
I can’t express enough how much your comments meant to me during this past week, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!  You, my friends, are awesome!!
Now, I must tell you….. I’m in Love!!  Well of course with Mrs Serious, but I have a new love!!  My new gardeners!!!!  Now, now… It’s purely platonic!!  I’m not inviting them in for drinks and such!  But they do the BEST job ever!!  They arrive at 4:00PM every Saturday, mow in a different direction each week (important!), edge, trim, pull weeds, feed, prune and clean up!  And the cost for this service?  $50 a month!!  Once a week!  I was paying $80 for Ho Chi Minh’s services and he did jack!!  (By the way, he refuses to even wave at me now, even though I did a hand sign to tell him he was #1!!)
Now I have to say that we have a slight communication problem due to me not having vocal cords and them not being able to speak English, but we use hand signals and a few grunts and it seems to be working.  They are fast too!  In and out in under 15 minutes!!  Of course, my dogs hate them!!!  Just like the mailman!
Mrs S has retreated to Phoenix to be with her sister so it’s party time here!!  Yep!! 
I hope you all are having a wonderful Autumn weekend!
This song is for my good friend Jeankfl!!  I couldn’t get her favorite Vince Gill song to play!!  And she is very picky!!  LOL!  Also, GJ???  I have been trying to comment to you for two hours with no success!!  Maybe email me at   Yeah!!  That’s my address.  GJ seems to need a hug!!  And has anyone seen Steph??  I think she needs a BIG hug!!   And I give those!! 
Looks like nice weather for tomorrow and the next week!!  A great time to visit the wasteland formerly known as Southern California!!  But the beaches are GREAT!!!  Surf’s up!!!

    Gardeners and doggies….. never was a love story….. just a "I’m going to bite your a*s story"!!! Happy if they are doing good job!!! As usual I want pics….. you know me by now! I need proof and judge for myself….hihihi!:oP
    Take care,

    Very glad to hear the awful fire is winding down.  This may be the ifrst time ever that I have heard anyone celebrate humidity – you could have two thirds of ours any time.  Nice on the gardener.  I rented a place near Sacramanto one time that came with gardener and pool guy.  The pool guy was likeable and a total crook – he tested the we\ater 9so to speak) by asking if I minded if he missed one day because he had some event or other and i was Ok with that – and he only showed up once ever again.  Fifty buck a month IS good – I didn’t think anyone diod anything in CA for that price.  Here in rural NY it is a year’s salary.

    *Waving at Bob*
    When you get some time, after you clean up your "partying while Mrs. Serious is away", I could use a comment, hug or a simple HOWDY!!! too, Bob!  I’ve missed your way of making me smile, even while I’ve known and taken most seriously how very, very busy you’ve been, dealing with the fires raging near you and the prayers and concerns you’ve had for your area and state.  My thoughts and prayers have been with you and Mrs. Serious and everyone in So Cal as well.  I hope the air quality will clear up soon now as well.

  10. Steve says:

    Bob, you did a yeoman’s job this past week+.  Thank you for keeping us all informed about you and the fires.  Would you be so kind to lend your gardeners to drop by here?  I could use them if they do more than just mow.  Enjoy, but do not party too hardy…hahaha.  Peace  J 

  11. Seth says:

    It’s a beautiful place, the state of California, and the people everywhere are as nice as they can be. Thinking about all this destruction chokes me up. I hope things return to (somewhat) normal soon.  Glad you are doing well. Keep alert.
    And hey… good to hear that you have yourselves some good gardeners.  I am thinking that I might need to consider hiring some help.  Quite frankly, I am getting tired of all these honeydo days.  That is when you get home from a shift or you finally get a day off and your lady friend says, "Honey, do this," and "Honey, do that" around the house.  Aaaargh!  Yup, sounds good to me, the hiring of gardeners.  
    Cheers to you!
